It is no secret that February is my least favourite month. With the ice and worrying about Irish it has seemed particularly hard. The weather has been it's typical unrelenting self- bitter cold, wind that could peel your face and snow/sleet/rain etc. Despite not liking this time of year I don't see why I need to let it dictate my mood.
I would describe myself as pretty happy most of the time. My natural bend is towards optimism. Which is why, despite the weather I try to find ways to enjoy myself. One item was a planned overnight with Karen and Jim. We had to cancel two weekends because of weather. Last weekend we had a nasty storm of rain and freezing rain. But saturday was going to be okay. I figured we could go as long as we didn't lose power.
Fate was kind our power stayed on and the roads were clear by saturday morning. It was a full-on Spanish weekend. I got to play with my little godhorse, Karen's young andalusian mare and I spent some time with Kalimo her stallion. Nobleza is now three and so smart. I just love her to bits.
|I mean, really, look at this|
|can you resist this face? I doubt it|
|At first she just looked at me|
|It feels like forever since I had this view|
|Irish looking perfectly fine|
